Aug. 27, 2014
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - The Boston College men's basketball team and the Atlantic Coast Conference released the 2014-15 schedule which features 30 games and 18 conference matchups.
The Eagles will play eight of their 12 non-conference games in Conte Forum - compared to just four last year. The other four non-conference tilts will be held on neutral courts with one being played at TD Garden and the other three as part of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.
Boston College opens the 2014-15 campaign by hosting New Hampshire on November 14. Two days later, the Eagles will play Massachusetts at TD Garden as part of the Coaches vs. Cancer Tripleheader.
BC will then travel south to take part in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The Eagles open the tournament with New Mexico (Nov. 20) and then face either George Mason or West Virginia the next day. The tournament also features the College of Charleston, Connecticut, Dayton and Texas A&M.
The Eagles then return home for six non-conference games in December before opening ACC play. BC welcomes Marist (Dec. 1) for the second meeting between the programs before hosting Providence (Dec. 5). BC and PC have met every season since 1953-54.
Maine (Dec. 11) and Binghamton (Dec. 14) visit Conte Forum before USC (Dec. 21) makes the cross-country trip to Chestnut Hill. BC and Binghamton will play for the first time ever this year. The Eagles close out the month by taking on UMass-Lowell (Dec. 29), a program led by former BC assistant coach Pat Duquette.
Six of the first nine ACC games will be on the road starting with Duke (Jan. 3). BC returns home to host Pittsburgh (Jan. 6) before heading back on the road to take on Miami (Jan. 10).
